Where's That Fire? (1940)
The bold Caballero (1936)
The Day of the Wolves (1973)

Looks like it wasn't registered with USCO, but they're claiming this:

Type of Work: Text
Registration Number / Date: RE0000930779 / 2009-06-30
Renewal registration for: Not reg.; Addendum submitted under PL 102-307. / PUB 1971-08-01
Title: The Day of the wolves. Motion picture, excluding preexisting musical compositions and sound recordings: Ferde Grofe d.b.a. Balut Productions.
Copyright Claimant: Ferde Grofe d.b.a. Balut Productions (PWH)
Copyright Note: C.O. correspondence.

Balut Productions

Can't say what this means, but Ferde Grofe was the director and writer.
